  • Excerpt: Aroma is soft and elegant with fruity and candy notes bolstered by malty ones. The Palate moves through a similar pattern, but with less complexity albeit more heaviness and richness. The finish should be made into breath mints or gum or a candle; it’s just delightful. I can’t recommend this whiskey enough.

  • Excerpt: The wood spices are relatively mild as the fruit from the sherry seems to saturate it. The whiskey is rich and has a satisfying finish.

  • Excerpt: Bold, attention-grabbing flavors of orange, honey, vanilla, dried ginger, pepper, and jam-slathered pastries, with caramel, ground almond, and a tantalizing, zesty grapefruit bitterness toward the end.

  • Excerpt: Very good, it just hasn’t got the complexity of the 16 yo in my opinion.

  • Excerpt: The finish finds hints of tobacco and barrel char, giving this a more brooding, savory conclusion than most Irish whiskeys. Despite its relatively advanced age, this is a whiskey that still feels young — perhaps undeservedly so, to be honest.

  • Publication: Wine Enthusiast
  • Excerpt: The aroma of this light-gold whiskey mixes notes of faint smoke and fresh apple. On the palate, vanilla, citrus and dried fruit mingle with an oaky astringency and strong alcohol heat.
